Braiden’s Okanagan Booksigning

October 14, 2008

Early in October, Mission Hill Family Estate was kind enough to host me for a two-hour booksigning during the Okanagan Fall WIne Festival. Here I am doing my thing, talking up a lovely young lady visiting from Victoria.

After the signing, we enjoyed taking the Discovery Tour throughout the property. Most impressive were the underground caves (blasted from volcanic soils!) and the wine-and-cheese tasting/comparison that ended the tour. 

I was also lucky enough to chat a few minutes with winery executive chef Michael Allemeier, who has racked up all sorts of impressive awards for The Terrace restaurant. Unfortunately, the one day we were there, it rained, so the al fresco resto was closed! That’s okay. It gives us another reason to return to Mission Hill soon and often. Here’s Chef Allemeier.

Here’s a photo of The Terrace restaurant at Mission Hill Family Estate, once the sun had finally come out, but too late for lunch!

And finally, here’s a photo of the winery’s monumental architecture.
